I don’t know why but I’ve never had a radler until tonight. I am thoroughly enjoying it. This isn’t something I would want all the time but as a “once in a while” beverage it’s quite nice. I think it would be most refreshing on a hot day. Thick white head that dissipates quickly. Lots of carbonation. Smell is grapefruit and so is the taste. Slight sweetness. Finish is tart and wet.

The ABV% is super low which is about the only bad thing about this beer, otherwise it is quite refreshing and has a really good grapefruit flavor and a nice hazy look.

From a 500ml can served straight from the fridge at 9 degrees Celsius into a tulip. Best before date: 17.2.2018.

Look: The beer pours a murky yellow/pale gold with 3cm of bubbly, white head that fades into nothingness in 1+ minutes. No lacing and overall poor retention. It doesn't get much worse than this.

Smell: Moderate strength and leaning towards sharp. Faint pale malts and strong grapefruit.

Taste: Moderate intensity and sweet. Again with very faint pale malts and tons of sugary grapefruit. The finish is short and sweet with faint intensity.

Feel: Light body with moderate carbonation. Crisp with no apparent alcohol.

Overall: A simple summer refresher. Carbonated grapefruit juice. That is all. I'm interested in trying it in a cocktail.

Pours a hazy yellow/gold colour. Smells like fresh grapefruit zest. Tastes sweet, juicy, squishy, fresh grapefruit zest, white grapefruit, pink grapefruit, and a slight malt underbody, with a clean/dry finish

Just starting to drink and learn to appreciate this style. I can understand why this particular Radler is popular. One could consume several on a warm day after a bike ride.

Extremely hazy dull yellow body with fizzy white head that quickly disappears. The nose is nearly pure grapefruit juice; a touch of wheat grounds this thought. The flavor better showcases the beer aspect by providing light malt akin to bread and a bit of yeastiness. It also has no tartness and even has mild sweetness. The soda 'Squirt' comes to mind, as offensive as that may be to the brewers. The body is light, a bit sugary, lightly carbonated.
A classic for a reason. While this is an abomination to purists, it is also a shining example of incorporating (hijacking) fruit into beer, to the point where it is difficult to tell whether it is alcoholic fruit juice or very fruity beer. Worth a try no matter what camp one finds oneself in.
